Welcome, follow along with George Dutka in his journal which documents the additions and future thoughts for the HO scale White River Division model railroad and to his continuing historical New England railroad research. The White River Division is now in its 13th modeler's season. The "modeler's season" runs from November to April each year. Inspiration comes from the Boston and Maine, Rutland and Central Vermont Railway during the 1950's with additional posts by Don Janes and Peter Mumby.

The coal loads look very realistic for dollar store black sand.
Chris Ellis has modeled a really nice looking coal load. These two models were on display at the 2016 NKPHTS
Convention in Bellevue this past October. These are basic Accurail kits
with some nice PanPastel weathering applied and Dollar Tree black sand coal loads. I will have to look into this dollar sand loads for my own hoppers. A link to Chris Ellis's blog is found below...enjoy...George Dutka
